DEBT COLLECTION IN UKRAINE

There is a mixed system to enforce judgments in the country of Ukraine. In 2017 the enforcement sector changed dramatically which now gives an option to collect your debts either through - Ukraine’s state enforcement officers or via private enforcement officers (private sector). Today, private enforcement officers are recognized to be more effective than state enforcement officers. Why? The main reason for this, is that a private enforcement officer is motivated to enforce a judgment. The officers livelihood would depend on it. Private enforcement officers, such as our firm, care about our clients and liaise with them throughout the process.

Private Enforcement Officer Ivan Zhabotynskyі

Ivan Zhabotynskyі is among those who became a private enforcement officer in Ukraine from the very outset. The office of a private enforcement officer applies all possible legal measures to enforce a judgment. We can undertake a number of legal actions on the Creditors behalf when enforcing the judgment, such as, seizure or arrest of property, search of a debtor or their assets, claiming debtor’s property from third parties, and even initiating a restriction of a debtor travelling abroad. As you can see the Ukraining enforcement system is very robust than in many other countries, therefore increasing your chances of success.

Ivan Zhabotynskyі, along with his assistants, is fluent in English and can consult with you on most legal issues related to enforcement proceedings. If a client would need to obtain court permission to enforce a foreign judgment in Ukraine, protect its violated rights in Ukrainian jurisdiction or simply obtain a qualified legal aid, Ivan Zhabotynskyі can recommend experienced and skilled lawyers.

As a matter of the legislation, there are two types of enforcement fees a private enforcement officer may charge. A primary enforcement fee is a compulsory one and charged to a debtor at the rate of 10 % of the sum collected from the debtor. The other one is an additional enforcement fee, which is not compulsory. The additional enforcement fee is paid by a client if there are certain agreements made between the officer and the client. Usually, our office through our enforcement officer Ivan Zhabotynskyі enforces judgments for the primary enforcement fee only. If we undertake a number of additional enforcement actions to collect your debt from the debtor an additional enforcement fee may required, however this is handled and negotiated on a case by case basis. To cooperate with our private enforcement officer Ivan Zhabotynskyі, a client must apply for the commencement of enforcement proceedings, in other words file a writ of enforcement and conclude an agreement relating to an additional enforcement fee, if necessary.

Procedure of Foreign Judgments in Ukraine

A foreign judgment or an arbitral award may be enforced in Ukraine only after a Ukrainian court permits its enforcement.
For this, a party seeking to enforce a foreign judgment or an arbitral award must file a motion with the court. The motion must be filed within three years of the date for such a judgment or award to have the legal effect.

Debt collection in Switzerland :

Debt collection in Switzerland is possible on the basis of the Federal law on debt enforcement and bankruptcy (LP).

The function of judicial officers does not exist in Switzerland. This function is assumed by a state organisation called the Debt Collection and Bankruptcy Office (Betreibungsamt, Office des poursuites, Ufficio di execution). Seizure is in a way a State monopoly.

Although subject to a federal law, the organisation of debt collection offices is the jurisdiction of cantons. The latter are free to organise their territory into debt collection and bankruptcy.

The debt collection and bankruptcy office proceeds, at the creditor’s request, with all acts necessary for the forced enforcement of a debt.

Procedure in brief :

The Swiss procedure of forced enforcement starts with the notification of a payment order by the debt collection office of the debtor’s domicile.

If there is no objection to the payment order, the performance procedure takes its course, a seizure is carried out and its result obviously depends on the financial situation and in particular the revenue of the debtor. The share known as “seizable” is that which exceeds the amount of the debtor’s living wage, which is also calculated by the competent debt collection office.

It is also necessary to specify that the debt collection office has a duty to carry out a “universal” seizure concerning all assets, resources and revenue of the debtor whatever their nature and wherever located in Switzerland.

Finally, if at the end of a 12-month seizure period the debt in question is not fully repaid, the debt collection office issues a loss certificate (certificate of insolvency) which interrupts the prescription and allows access to a new seizure, for a 20 year period.

Let us specify again that if there is an objection to the payment order, the procedure is similar notwithstanding the need to have the objection dismissed by a legal event in other words that of a petition for court summons as withdrawal of objection.

Cost of a complete procedure:

The costs of a complete procedure are very difficult to estimate since they depend on the steps that will have to be taken.

The estimate cost for a procedure without a judicial act are as follows :

Switzerland

If a petition for court summons as withdrawal of objection is necessary (see above), the costs of the court depend on the cantons. Generally, they vary between CHF 800.-- to CHF 1'600.--. Urban cantons are the most expensive.

Judicially enforced receivership

If the creditor party has:

  • A judicial act satisfying the conditions of the CL
  • A notarial act satisfying the conditions of the CL
  • An acknowledge of debts concluded under private agreement
  • A loss certificate

A court summons procedure as a enforced receivership can be instituted.

This procedure allows the immediate seizure of personal property, including the debts or real property found in the debtor’s estate and having a sufficient link with Switzerland.

Once the enforced receivership granted by the judge, the procedure must then be validated by a standard debt collection procedure as set out previously.

The aim of this procedure is to safeguard the assets found in the estate of the prosecuted, thus preventing the latter from relinquishing them for the purposes of harming his creditors.

The costs of this procedure are the same as for withdrawal an objection, they vary between CHF 800.-- to CHF 1'600.-- according to the canton, urban cantons are the most expensive.
